Payment Specialist – Financial Management & Payments

Lehi, United States

We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical. 

Collective Health is on a mission to make it effortless for organizations and their people to understand, navigate and pay for their healthcare. Collective Health combines technology, design, and a human touch to allow benefits teams to deliver a truly enjoyable healthcare experience to their employees while also equipping benefits teams and their consulting partners with the data and insights necessary to help develop effective and efficient benefits strategies. Backed by the same investors behind SpaceX, Airbnb, Palantir and Slack, our team brings together domain experts — engineers from NASA, product managers from Facebook, actuaries from Blue Shield and executives from Google — to reimagine health insurance with technology and design.

We are looking for a Payment Specialist to join our fast-growing Financial Management & Payments (FMP) team! Collective Health administers self-insured health plans for employers (our clients) and the FMP team is responsible for managing the associated billing, payment, and reporting for our clients. This involves administering payments to health plan partners, producing reports to support our clients’ financial reporting needs, and serving as the primary point of contact for our clients’ Finance and Accounting teams. The FMP team is a key liaison between our clients and their health plan partners and helps make the administration of a self-insured health plan seamless and easy.

You will have the opportunity to help build and define our check and payment reconciliation processes as we grow and scale. This is a great entry-level position for a person that recently completed or is pursuing a Finance or Accounting degree.

While we are embracing a remote-flexible work week, employees are expected to be within commuting distance of an office. The  frequency of in-office days will be determined on a team-by-team basis closer to the reopening of our offices.

What you’ll do:

  • Preparing and issuing checks
  • Generating check invoices
  • Processing check reissue requests
